The Hot Press Newsdesk, 09 Jul 2012
22-year-old Raymond Donnan from Greenfort Crescent in Clondalkin, Dublin has been accused of assault causing harm, possession of a knife, violent disorder and public order offences arising from the stabbings at Saturday’s Swedish House Mafia show in the Phoenix Park.
The Central Court was told that Donnan was arrested that night at 9.55pm, and when charged the following evening declined to say anything.
Of the nine people injured during the concert, one remains in a critical condition after being stabbed four times in the back and kidneys.
A young gig-goer from Clonsilla also died of a suspected drugs overdose, and a 19-year-old woman from Cobh, Aoife Finnan, has gone missing after being separated from her friends.
Open to the possibility that there were multiple attackers, the Gardai are appealing for witnesses to contact them at (01) 666 7000, while anyone with information on Aoife’s whereabouts should call (021) 490 8530.
